of the obama administration's response to the september 11th terror attack in benghazi, libya that left four americans dead. including the u.s. ambassador. national security correspondent jennifer griffin has details tonight from the pentagon. good evening, jennifer. >> greenk, bret. fox news has obtained a progress report prepared by members of the house republican conference on events surrounding the september 11th attacks in benghazi. it concludes the administration's reaction was, quote: a concerted attempt to insulate the department of state from blame following the terrorist attacks. the report was prepared by the chairman of the armed services foreign affairs judiciary oversight and government reform and select committee on intelligence. all of them republican. here are their initial findings after months of gathering testimony and reviewing internal interagency communications. quote: prior to the benghazi attacks, state department officials in libya made repeated requests for additional security that were denied in washington despite ample documentation of the threat posed by viole
there are still so many unanswered questions and it's kind of similar to boston in that the obama administration just apparently wants it to go away. benghazi, they want it to go away. let's nail it down, it's over. nothing -- move along, folks, nothing to see here. now, with boston no broader plot? how do we know. it's been eight days. we haven't even questioned the wife of the older brother, tsarnaev. his family members -- the younger brother in custody, he has the throat wound help cant speak. he is writing things down. there are so many unanswered questions, and the key thing here, neil, the older brother was in russia. al qaeda groups. was he meeting with islamic terrorists? i don't see how you can say there's no broader plot. i pray there wasn't but we don't know yet in and for the administration to say this is open and shut, just these two guys, let's move along, to me it fits a pattern we saw in benghazi and continues today. nell neil we -- >> neil: we know the fbi was alerted to tamerlan and his trips. gone through everything, his associations, everything about the guy, and they gave hi
are being security purposes. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> the white house telling reporters it would try the younger brother in federal court and that no options were considered. >> this is a matter that's decided by the department of justice and the attorney general, obviously at the top, the whole national security team supports this decision. >> military trial was not an option in this case because the 19-year-old is an american citizen. even if it provided more information about his brother who was killed last week. shep. >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington. catherine, thank you. that criminal complaint details the suspect's serious injuries. gunshot wounds to the head, the throat, the legs, and the hand. investigators say it appears the suspect shot himself as swat teams closed. in a possible attempt to kill himself they say. today, officers said he was in very bad shape by the time they took him down. >> moving up to the boat, he was actually laying down on the side of the boat.
you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very
preview of the secret agenda you can expect in a second obama administration. in first term i sang al green. in my second term, i'm going with yung jeezy. >> weez s'll see what he does. conan o'brien, the listed funny man. president obama will get a few laughs as well and i will be live from d.c. next weekend, next saturday night, for the play-by-play of the white house correspondents dinner. >>> major flooding in the midwest. dozens of rivers overnid. the mississippi risen ten feet in 36 hours. live to illinois. >>> and old the older tsarnaev brother spent his time. you're watching msnbc, the pla is for politics. >>> family to me is the most important thing. >> when me and my family get together, it's absolute chaos. clusters of pustules, pimples. the soreness was excruciating. it was impossible to even think about dancing. when you're dancing, your partner is holding you. so, his hand would have been right in the spot that i had the shingles. no tango. no rhumba. you can't be touched. for more of the inside story, visit shinglesinfo.com >>> there was a moment of silence at the londo
to the department of defense for the obama administration. jay, good to see you again, thank you very much for being with us. you have been involved in so many of these issues. we wanted to talk to you, about your take-away about enemy combatant. judicial decisions in a number of cases can you clarify how long can this exception from your wisdom last. is it the point the arrest. or the point of communication? >> well first of all, it's important to remember that any time dangerous criminal, suspect, is arrested for terrorist acts, our first impulse when that suspect is from a foreign land or is of a certain religion, should not be a reach for the military. the military is not the only answer here. and i warned about that in office, the possibility of over militarization of our common terrorism efforts, it's a whole government effort. second, the notion of designating the suspect as an enemy combatant, i'm not even sure is legal. in this situation. to be part of the enemy force in the congressionally authorized armed conflict from 2001, the suspect would need to be either part of al qaeda or an assoc
lawyered up in rhode island, hasn't yet been interrogated. also why hasn't the obama administration declared the wounded terrorist to be an enemy combatant? he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice under u.s. law the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions the. >> bill: well some constitutional experts dispute mr. cancery's statement if you partner up with a foreign terrorist organization you become part of that. it's about interrogation not about trial "wall street journal" has by far the most section tonight left one bomber dead, one police officer dead and other bomber gravely wounded. joining us from boston brian bender "boston globe" reporter and craner. let's pick it up ms. cram kramer with the two suspects in cambridge around 10:00 p.m. thursday night. take it from there. >> yes. that's when the chaos essentially began. what happened was they come upon officer sean collier, for reasons we do not understand yet and may never understand they open fire on him. the word that has be
committee leaders are pressing the obama administration for more information on how it plans to furlough air traffic controllers and close contract towers, and how it would affect public safety. there is a quote from senate commerce committee chairman jay rockefeller. he said we are faced with substantial possible disruptions to the air transportation system. what is your may know concern? obviously jobs. as far as public safety, are there questions that are lingering right now? >> we're comfortable on safety because safety won't be compromised. certainly by our member airlines. what we're concerned about is the lack of transparency in the faa process that doesn't give us information and did not give us information upon which we could plan. more importantly, the greatest concern is, these furloughs are unnecessary. they're unwise. and we believe they are illegal. never in the history, in our history have air traffic controllers been furloughed. the reason is simple. they not only keep the air space safe. they keep it moving. that is a matter for commerce, business travelers, leisure traveler
to handle him as what they describe as an enemy combat talent. the obama administration doesn't use that term anymore it allows for an indefinite detention of someone under national security concerns. that's what they are hoping for. we will see what the justice department decides, they haven't yet. but certainly, this issue will find its way to washington. there are various house and senate committees that have already said they plan to investigate exactly issues leading up to this explosion and then the subsequent manhunt and investigation and surely those concerned about how the administration handles him in the coming days. no surprise that this group has already said that they would like this because they say frankly, this is what it's for. you find a terrorist on u.s. soil, this is how they should be treated. democrats this after the into, some have already turned around and said, look, the administration is doing just fine on this, this san american citizen, he has to be afforded his rights, the justice department is acting a i appropriate. >> adrian, our pete williams is rep
? >> fundamental question, is this an international terrorism investigation, and did the obama administration know something about these two men back as far back as 2011. what we now know is that the fbi at the request of another country, no one is saying it's russia, at the request of another country looked into the activities of the older brother. there was concern that another country expressed about him. the fbi issuing a statement last night about all of that, and saying in part, and let me read it, "the request stated it was based on information that he, the older brother, was a follower of radical islam and a strong believer, and that he had changed drastically since 2010, as he prepared to leave the united states for travel to the country's region to join unspecified underground groups." we don't know that this request to look into him came from russia, but now russian president vladimir putin today saying he wants some cooperation obviously with u.s. investigators. the u.s. intelligence community, the fbi, the cia now going back through everything they have, trying to see if there were, i
thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
system of justice. >> i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect. >> reporter: and the question of whether the fbi dropped the ball in 2011 when it looked at tamerlan tsarnaev's activity will be the subject of a closed-door briefing on capitol hill later today, when law enforcement officials brief lawmakers. john? >> all right, barbara starr, thanks so much. barbara starr in washington. i want to bring back fran townsend, cnn analyst, former homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. and fran, i want to get your take here. where do you think the investigation stands right now? we've had these initial criminal complaints given dzhokhar tsarnaev. we've seen sort of the case laid out just a little bit. but how about the investigation itself? what are the next steps? >> well, first of all, we know from investigators that they're cooperating with the russians. i talked to sources, federal sources, and the cooperation between russian authorities and the fbi is quite good. both want to understand what they mig
